We Review Making Disciples in Messy Church

Posted by James Warwood  ·  Be the first to comment

This book reaches beyond the Messy Church model, mapping out the biblical groundwork and practical outworking’s of community based discipleship within our secular, postmodern culture. So what I'm saying is: this book formulates the future of discipleship.

Bishop Paul Butler recently said, “Messy church needs to reinvent discipleship”. Well, Paul Moore (Church of England Vicar and founding member of Messy Church) says differently. His book clearly points towards Old & New Testament examples of discipleship that directly apply to a strong community framework, especially Acts & Jesus with his twelve disciples. Through case studies and these biblical examples, anyone daring enough to read the book will discover the Church has lost its community focus when doing discipleship/evangelism.

Reading this book has given me a new appreciation for church. The book itself is an easy, down-to-earth read with largeish font and small manageable chapters. The courteous page count of 126 pages tells you Paul doesn’t want to waste anyone’s time. Inside you’ll find our old friends the Engel Scale and the Gray Matrix. You’ll find more than a handful of stories from Messy Churches all over the globe. You’ll find practical advice that isn’t exclusive to the Messy model.

Most of all, you’ll be encouraged to craft your church's projects/groups/Messy Church/or whatever, into immersive learning experiences that feed your communities spiritual hunger and nurture faith, love and discipleship. Well done Paul!
